Wilcox County, Georgia -

Wilcox County High School had its first integrated prom over the weekend.  Previously, black students and white students went to separate dances.  These were considered private events organized by parents and students.  The Wilcox County Superintendent stressed the segregated proms were not organized by the school.  One student said the turnout was, "...so unbelievable. I feel like it's not really happening."
